To those armies who were not able to stay up late to watch the announcement of the Grammy nominations live, the answer is a resounding yes! BTS can now boast of a second Grammy nomination. They got one last year for Dynamite.

It is just in one category, Best Pop/Duo or Group Performance and BTS is up against formidable competition. Think Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Doja Cat and the revered duo of Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. Another one in the Record of the Year or Song of the Year would have been nice. But it is still a Grammy nomination.

That means a lot more than the adulation of fan armies. Becoming a “regular” at the Grammys is a major step forward towards the recognition of not just K-Pop but also of more Asian Acts in the global realm of popular music.

Top guy at the 2022 Grammys is the multi-talented Jon Batiste with a whopping 11 nods.  Surprised? A lot of music fans are. But I say, listen to him. He sounds fantastic. Justin, Doja Cat and H.E.R. came in next with eight, while Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo tied with seven.

But don’t you dare think that the Grammys have ditched its geriatric tendencies. Despite a lot of young bloods, legacy acts continue to flourish from Paul McCartney and AC/DC to Jay-Z and Kanye West and the guy expected to go home with the major prizes, the 95-year-old Tony.
